Branches are horizontally flattened towards their extremities. Corallites are tubular and irregular in length. Axial corallites, if formed at all, are indistinct.

Colour: Tan or pale brown with white axial corallites.

Habitat: Shallow outer reef slopes exposed to wave action.

Abundance: Usually common and conspicuous.

Similar species: Acropora prolifera
